My wife is outside her comfort zone with anything but acetamiophen. I tried to get her to take an herbal remedy that I suggested for menopause symptoms, but she wouldn't even consider it. I explained the pysiological and long term effects of her diminishing estrogen supply. Nothing doing. Symptoms got to the point of affecting her in a mental capacity, and me for that matter, and she finnaly took it and got complete relief in a day. She has not missed a dose since.
I don't like to go to the doctor. It feels shameful. Like I'm weak or something. I went just recently, at my wifes insistance, to get some growths looked at. I thought they were sebbaceous cysts and didn't want to give someone a fifteen dollar co-pay to pop some glorified zits on my back until they were painful or something to justify it.
Of course my routine BP was elevated and now I've got to spend time to get my lipids checked and lower my salt intake and all that crap.
They were sebbaceous cysts and I have to make another damm appointment to get them excised properly. She popped one of them because it was giving me pain and gave me a script for a prophylactic antibiotic per protocol.............did I take them? Did I get the lab done?......Hell no, walk it off Nancyboy! I've got to work for a living. I'll just simply pay attention to what I eat and get some excercise. Geeze.
I was felling fine before I went to the doctor, and now I'm just a sickly thing
